For those who don’t know, I’m a big Disney fan.
I had to do a project on him in 3rd grade as a famous Chicagoan and have watched almost all his movies since the beginning of time – it grew from there and never stopped.
Taking a cue from a Chef Gusteau (Ratatouille), one important thing I have to remember while being in the country of food is simply this; “anyone can cook”.
With this in mind, I am no expert. I throw things I think work well or attempt a Pinterest find and hope it goes well.
Since I am taking a few cooking classes here, I thought, why not share the (learning) wealth?
I’m going to start a little series called Anyone Can Cook along with what I’ll be making. I started this blog to be able to not just show fashion, but all aspects of life – including the one I am currently working on which is cooking!
Without further adieu, here it goes! Comment what you think and let me know if you try it!
One thing I cooked last night that is so easy (and so delicious!) is pasta with pesto and cheese.
I’m not a huge meat sauce person so pesto was a great alternative to add flavor.
Here are the items you’ll need for this dish:
1 quarter of a box of pasta (whatever kind you want to use! I chose Penne Rigate)
a dash of pesto (can pick it up at any supermarket for cheap)
parmesan cheese (either already in a container or a block to grate)
drizzle of olive oil
pinch of salt & pepper
pot & cover
Step 1: Take the pot and fill halfway with water, drizzle in olive oil, and a pinch of salt. Cover with a top on the stove, set to medium heat and wait until it boils.
Step 2: Once boiling, pour the pasta in and stir and change the heat setting to a little bit lower. Wait 10 minutes and check the pasta by stirring it and pulling one out; if its still hard, give it another 5 minutes, if not its ready!
Step 3: Strain the pasta over the sink and move it to a bowl. Pour the pesto on top and a dash of pepper. Mix well.
Step 4: Grate the cheese (or pour if already powdery) on top of the pasta. Mix well.
Step 5: Serve & eat – you’re done!
